Mixed Media - Mixed Media Collage And Assemblage On Birch Wall Panel.
This is the first mixed media collage of a diptych that I have been working on, using the sea view I had when I lived at Witsand in South Africa.
It contains the most unlikely items which I have been collecting for a long time. Things like shells, gulls feathers, beach sand, driftwood and bark from a tree to represent a rock. The sky and cloud were painted with pastel and the ocean and beach had an undercoat of acrylic. Acrylic and acrylic ink were used to highlight the beach sand and shadows. This is probably one of the reasons why there is not much spare space in our home!
- The human ego can be exalted to experience godlike attributes, but only at the cost of over-reaching itself and falling to disaster. This is the meaning of the story of Icarus, the youth who is carried up to heaven on his fragile, humanly contrived wings but who flies too close to the sun and plunges to his doom. -
The watermark does not appear in the final printed product.
